Eric and I met in our early college days but didn't start dating until our last semester senior year; an honest "what do we have to lose?" moment. Following our college graduation, Eric moved across the sea to Budapest, Hungary, and I moved to Nashville, TN to begin grad school. Although distance worked against us, we knew we had something special when we grew closer to one another during our physical time apart. A year later, Eric received a job offer in Chicago. Three months after that, the job offer I received after grad school was located in none other than Chicago! After nearly a year spent thousands of miles apart, we began living less than a mile down the road from each other. We grew to love our new home, and, inevitably, our love for each other continues to grow alongside our love for this city. On July 4th, 2020, Eric and I woke up at 5 am to catch a summer sunrise over Lake Michigan. There, he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him (and an undeniably beautiful ring!) and the words couldn't come quick enough!
We're thrilled to look ahead to our future together as husband and wife!
